Description

Jeremy Shipp brings you THE ATROCITIES, a haunting gothic fantasy of a young ghost's education

When Isabella died, her parents were determined to ensure her education wouldn't suffer.

But Isabella's parents had not informed her new governess of Isabella's... condition, and when Ms Valdez arrives at the estate, having forced herself through a surreal nightmare maze of twisted human-like statues, she discovers that there is no girl to tutor.

Or is there...?

Review quote

Praise for The Atrocities

"This beautifully executed tale . . . will surely linger with readers."--Publishers Weekly


Praise for Jeremy Shipp

"Shipp's clear, insistent voice pulls you down into the rabbit hole and doesn't let go." --Jack Ketchum

"Jeremy C. Shipp's boldness, daring, originality, and sheer smarts make him one of the most vital younger writers who have colonized horror literature in the past decade. Shipp's modernist clarity, plus his willingness to risk damn near everything, put him up at the head of the pack with the very best." --Peter Straub
